Yesterday, the University of Rhode Island Faculty Senate passed an
institutional open-access policy. The text of the policy is available
here: http://bit.ly/1481n38 and below. The policy will become final
when signed by the university president.

University of Rhode Island Open-Access Policy

The Faculty of the University of Rhode Island is committed to
disseminating the fruits of its research and scholarship as widely as
possible. In keeping with that commitment, the Faculty adopts the
following policy: Each Faculty member grants to the University of
Rhode Island permission to make available his or her scholarly
articles and to exercise the copyright in those articles. More
specifically, each Faculty member grants to the University of Rhode
Island a nonexclusive, irrevocable, worldwide license to exercise any
and all rights under copyright relating to each of his or her
scholarly articles, in any medium, provided that the articles are not
sold, and to authorize others to do the same. The policy applies to
all scholarly articles authored or co-authored while the person is a
member of the Faculty except for any articles completed before the
adoption of this policy and any articles for which the Faculty member
entered into an incompatible licensing or assignment agreement before
the adoption of this policy. The Faculty Senate or Faculty Senate’s
designate will, on behalf of the University, waive application of the
license for a particular article or delay access for a specified
period of time upon express direction by a Faculty member.

Each Faculty member will provide an electronic copy of the author’s
final version of each article no later than the date of its
publication at no charge to the University Libraries acting as the
representative of the Faculty Senate in an appropriate format (such as
PDF) specified by the University Libraries.

The University Libraries may make the article available to the public
in an open-access repository. The Faculty Senate Library Committee
will be responsible for developing an implementation plan for this
policy that has faculty interests in mind, interpreting this policy,
resolving disputes concerning its interpretation and application, and
recommending changes to the Faculty Senate. The policy will be
reviewed after three years and a report presented to the Faculty
